As a gift to my mom, my sisters and I gave her a 1 week all expenses paid for trip to Newfoundland with the three of us. You have to take the good with the bad.
Instead of writing about it, I decided to put together a video capturing the highlights of our trip and hopefully convey how much fun we had.

Backpacking in Europe – Student Style

Darcy Travel Leave a Comment

I recently found an old travel log of when I backpacked through Europe and thought I would share. Back when I was a student, I spent a year studying in Scotland at the University of Strathclyde as part of Carleton’s University Exchange Program. It was definitely a personality defining year for me and it played a big part in shaping who I am today and I think back on that year with fond memories.

I love me some barrel sauna time! In the distance, you can see another cottage. Lots of privacy.

Insults In The Dark – 2013 – Fiddler Lake Resort

While on our last Insults in the Dark summer trip, we kept driving by the resort so I got curious and looked it up online. It was pretty swanky and we joked about going there the following year. Fast forward 8 months and it was planning time again and as usual, it was tough nailing down a weekend where everyone was free. As a result, our choices were limited on where to go and the resort we joked about going to became a reality.

When I tell people I decided to spend 3 weeks on vacation in Ecuador, the typical question I get is “why there?”. My typical response is “why not?”. My goal was to go to a place where there would not be thousands of tourists armed with cameras and camcorders. Well Mission accomplished.
